Carne Humana - we are very excited about this one...

We are proud to introduce to Missouri...Carne Humana

The first 56 cases are gone, we just got in the last 28 of this vintage.
The response has been amazing on this one, stock up before it is gone.

2011 Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Wine....$31.99
Bullet points

  • Produced and bottled at Caymus
  • Made by winemaker Derek Beitler who is the nephew of Chuck Wagner (owner of Caymus)
  • This is the most exciting blend we have found since Orin Swift The Prisoner.  In fact it reminds you of Orin Swift wines - combination of Papillon and The Prisoner perhaps.
  • Super-premium blend without the super-premium price
  • Blend of 40% Petite Verdot, 30% Petite Sirah, 10% Zinfandel, 10% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Charbono
  • Only 2nd vintage produced.  Do not wait until the press gets their hands on this wine.
  • We feel this will be one of our top wines over the next few months.
  • You are going to want a case of this one after you taste it!

Carne Humana is a red wine blend sourced from six vineyards throughout the upper-Napa Valley sub-appellations of Calistoga, St. Helena, and Rutherford. Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Zinfandel are among the grape varieties chosen for this vintage. Whereas most red blends are created from separate lots and combined before bottling, Carne Humana was co-fermented and barrel aged as a single lot for greater depth and integration.
This wine was aged in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels for 18 months.
